Overview


Synopsis

Noel Coward's sparkling comedy, Blithe Spirit revolves around Charles, who is planning a séance as research for his new book. He invites the eccentric medium, Madam Arcati, into his English country home, intending to expose the Madam as a fraud. To witness this event, Charles and his second wife, Ruth, invite the skeptical Dr. Bradman and his anxious-to-believe wife, Violet. When, in the course of the seance, Madam Arcati mistakenly summons Charles' first wife, Elvira, back from the beyond, things get thoroughly out of hand.
